Summary

"The aim of the current study was to examine the feasibility of using the Correctional Service of Canada’s (CSC) Offender Management System (OMS) to develop a gender-informed risk/need assessment tool. All federal women offenders admitted to custody for a new warrant of committal between September 28, 2009 to January 8, 2017 who had a subsequent release into the community were included in this study." -- Executive Summary, p.iii.
